Michi Tresch


Michi grew up in Uri, Switzerland, right in the middle of the Alps. His father was a mountaineer and climber, thus he got into climbing at age 10. He improved quickly and began competing, later becoming a three-time Swiss Junior National champion. Michi retired from competing and became fascinated with bouldering and sport climbing.

He has made many first ascents of boulder problems up to Fb 8b (V13), and has completed a couple of routes up to 8c (5.14b). In the last few years Michi has become an accomplished multi-pitch trad climber and has established some multi-pitch 8a’s. He also recently made the 4th ascent of "Golden Gate", a 41-pitch 5.13b (8a) on El Cap in Yosemite and completed several first ascents in Greenland (up to 7c/ 5.12d) and Wadi Rum, Jordan. Currently, Michi is working as a climbing instructor in Luzern, Switzerland and climbing as much as possible...
